. >> that's the end of the first presidential debate between governor romney of massachusetts and president obama. you see both men being greeted by their wives on stage. even this portion of the debate is negotiated ahead of time by the campaigns in terms of which members of their family will be joining them on stage. this is, these these are negotiated down to this level of detail. in terms of how the overall debate unfolded, i personally do not know who won this debate. i do feel that we saw this debate format die a very painful death on camera tonight. the contrast between the candidates was stylistic as much as substantive. president obama i think calm and basically explanatory tonight. governor romney, more hyper, and i don't mean that in a negative way, just sort of more amped, more assertive. and that manifests in a way that the debate format was just dismantled. the format and i think the moderator, with all due respect to mr. lehrer dismantled. this is one of those debates, you could predict the score more by time of possession in terms of who was speaking more. then you could by

-checking governor romney after last week's debate. you should know nbc news has not granted either campaign permission to use our news material and immediately requested that the campaign refrain from using nbc news material in this and future advertisements. the obama commercial uses only a short clip from a truth squad report that, in fact, pointed out exaggerations and/or misstatements that both candidates made during the debate. just want to make that clear. >>> mitt romney has accused the president of failure of leadership. also failure of leadership that's emboldened iran and other u.s. adversaries abroad in the middle east and north africa. >> this president's policies haven't been equal to our best examples of world leadership. nowhere is this more evident than in the middle east. i want to be very clear. the blame for the murder of our people in libya and the attacks on our embassies in other countries lies solely with those who carried them out. no one else. but it is our responsibility and the responsibility of the president to use america's greatest power to shape history, not t
